The Love Letter Library Part 1

Love is her jam! I discovered The Love Letter Library's instagram account at this time last year.  It was in the midst of my separation and my move.  My life was changing; my sons' worlds were rocked.  It came at the perfect time to lift my spirits, see that beautiful things were happening around me, and give my boys something kind to hear about.   Behind the account, I found…

4-H Fun!

We started 4-H as a way to be able to have chickens in our neighborhood.  But it quickly became much more than that!   First to dip their feet in was actually me.  Over several months, they offered Backyard Basics classes for adults.  I attended a canning class, a yogurt and mozzarella-making class, and a sausage-making class.  Got Ben to help me with my first attempt at making the sausage…

Voges Veggies

To dive way too deep into the backstory, Lindsey and I became friends while our oldest kiddos were in KinderMusic together.  I'm also the children's photographer here in Boerne, where she used me to photograph her family... and then later worked for me for a couple of years, doing all of our marketing.

Our Business Highlighted (The Social Butterfly Gal)

My favorite highlight so far was a little collaboration between us and The Social Butterfly Gal! It was so fun to meet up with Christina for lunch, get to know her.  She constantly updated me as she was using our products.  She gave a couple of sneak-peaks as she was leading up to her blog post and giveaway.  And then she unveiled it all.  So much fun! {blog post is…

4-H Chicken Fun Show

Our brave, fearless, and crazy 4-H poultry project leader attempted her own chicken show for us... and succeeded!!! The kids got to practice their showmanship skills.  They showed their chickens.  There was a cutest chick contest.  Our eggs competed!  ;)  The kids got to dress up their chickens for a costume contest (just look how cute Ms. O is in her military tutu, to match Ben war museum shirt... and…

My Day in Texas Ag Takeover

LOVED being asked to takeover the My Day in Texas Ag instagram account!  And I rocked it!  ;)   I highlighted farm-fresh salads, sides, meals, desserts, and cocktails.  I talked about the Pearl farmers market, the Hill Country Nursery, Voges Veggies, 4-H, raising chickens, fresh eggs, and more!  Even got to enjoy Valeria Farm-to-Table and Whiskey Cake for the first times too!   The only thing that could have made…
